The University of Georgia College of Pharmacy requires criminal background checks on all applicants accepted for admission to the Doctor of Pharmacy professional program.
The UGA College of Pharmacy requires all incoming students to provide evidence of immunization against measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR), current Tetanus vaccination (including Tdap), and evidence of immunity against Hepatitis B and Varicella Zoster (chicken pox). Students must also be tested for tuberculosis exposure using a 2 step tuberculin skin test or IGRA test (QuantiFERON-TB GOLD or TSPOT-TB). In the case of a positive tuberculin skin test or IGRA test, proof must be provided for the following items: positive tuberculin skin test result, current chest x-ray report (within 3 years), and a physician statement on the need for prophylactic treatment. If prescribed treatment has been completed, documentation of this will also be needed.
The physical exam must be completed within the past 12 months and be documented on our form below, unless it is completed at the UGA Student Health Center where students will be instead be given a letter on letterhead with the UGA College of Pharmacy certification statement included (Note: Be sure to inform the UGA Student Health Center the physical is for the College of Pharmacy).
